Massey Kids Club Holiday Programme

Group_2014 The Massey Kids Club Holiday Programme runs under a similar philosophy to the Afterschool Programme, where children are encouraged to enjoy themselves as much as possible while learning core values such as respect, responsibility and reliability. Our highly qualified pool of staff try to create a stimulating experiential and educational atmosphere, in which the children are encouraged to have fun while they are learning. We are a non-profit organisation which sets us apart from other centres in Palmerston North. As such, all earnings are filtered back into creating a safe environment for the children where they can have as much fun as possible.
